South Korea offers free book to Korean War veterans

To commemorate the 60th Anniversary of the Korean War, the Wisconsin Departments of Military Affairs and Veterans Affairs are partnering to distribute a special book to those veterans who served in that conflict.

The hardbound, full-color, 175-page commemorative is provided to honor these great veterans and their families for their service and sacrifice.

The book was published in Salt Lake City and was paid for by the South Korean public and private sectors. The free book is available to be picked up at the following locations:
